Values align for new Friend of the House
NRL Cowboys House has welcomed a new Friend of the House to its partner family, with Vivid continuing their efforts to create opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island students.
Committed to providing education and direct employment opportunities for First Nations People, Vivid are well positioned through the Friends of the House partnership as a local North Queensland employer and national provider to support education and career pathways for NRL Cowboys House students when they finish schooling.
Vivid CEO Dan Carpenter, inspired by the authenticity of NRL Cowboys House said becoming a Friend of the House provides an opportunity to contribute to the lives of students from remote communities.
“The way that the NRL Cowboys House team has brought together all levels of government and the private sector to focus on delivering real results for these kids is commendable, and to do it with so much passion and commitment goes above and beyond and we wanted to be part of that,” he said.
“We were aware of the amazing contribution that the House was making to the lives of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island students, not just by providing a great environment to live and learn in, but also the life skills and relationships that these kids will take through their life journey and we felt a real values alignment.
“Vivid is fully committed both through our Vivid Property Services RAP and our Vivid Indigenous Services company to provide education and direct employment opportunities for First Nations People, and becoming a Friend of the House provides us an opportunity to contribute to something special.”
Friends of the House is a well-established partnership platform that provides like-minded businesses with an opportunity to contribute to the vision and purpose of NRL Cowboys House, improving outcomes for students from 29 remote North Queensland communities.
Cowboys Community Foundation Director Fiona Pelling said Vivid’s commitment to NRL Cowboys House supports education and whole-of-life outcomes for young North Queenslanders.
“We’re so proud to be able to recognise Vivid as a Friend of the House and welcome their commitment to sharing our vision of every student graduating to meaningful employment or further study,” she said.
“Our partners allow us to make sustainable change through our programs and positively contribute to the aspirations and achievements of our young people, and we’re delighted to have Vivid join us in our work.”
